Michael Jackson and Akon-Hold My Hand Video

When a rough version of this track leaked back in 2008, I was a pretty big fan of it, and this final version is even better. The 08 version didn’t really have many MJ vocals and was Akon-dominated, but it’s a nice duet here as Akon trades in the Autotune for a much more melodic style.

It’s an MJ track all over, with the feelgood vibes and positive outlook emanating throughout. The video plays on that superbly, with a simple mixture of youth and classic Michael Jackson concert footage furthering that blissful innocence to the point of tugging on your heartstrings. Definitely worth a watch, and certainly worth a listen. Be sure to grab that album next week.
